9:00am
>> stephanie: hello, current tv world. how number 1. charlie pierce of esquire.com among other fabulous treats. jacki schechner you know what the silver lining for me in the republican pounding in the election, is their repeated attempts to reach out to the women folk. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: somebody in the republican party pointed out that mitt romney won white women. so that's proof that they don't have a chick problem. >> is that true? >> stephanie: yeah six points worse among -- what do you call -- romney's performance among white women was six points worse than among white men.
9:01am
but he technically did win white women. >> not this white woman. not the white woman i speak with. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: yes, the president won women by double digits. but, yes, the white women apparently love that mittens. >> hum. >> stephanie: here she is in the current news jacki schechner. >> good morning, everybody. the president and vice president are scheduled to meet with state governors at the white house today just after 10:00 am eastern to talk about ways to balance the budget then at 12:30 the president's first post-election interrue. anticipate plenty of discussion about the counteroffer on the fiscal cliff. and the gop would avoid toxin creases for everyone including
9:02am
the 1%. and endorse $1.4 trillion in cuts and adjustments to medicare, social security and other mandatory programs. the white house says it does not pass the test of balance and sticks the middle class with the bill. nancy pelosi will file the discharge position that we talked about yesterday, and that would force a vote for the bush tax cuts. the new "washington post" pugh research poll say 58% of those asked say it would be the republicans fault if we go over the fiscal cliff. and that shows all this back and forth isn't doing house gop any good. we're back after the break.
9:03am
alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. rich, chewy caramel rolled up in smooth milk chocolate. don't forget about that payroll meeting. rolo.get your smooth on. also in minis.
9:04am

9:05am
because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have had hepatitis b have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.

9:11am
unhappy about the congress critters signing the pledge to grover norquist. he released a video calling norquist's pledge a treassonnous oath. they will not raise taxes of any kind on anyone and therefore they have taken an oath to an outside organization not supported by the constitution. this is a non-governmental organization, not elected by anybody, and supported by big-money people. and these people have signed a sworn oath that contradicts
9:12am
their oath of office. they are not sincerely taking their oath of office. >> they should all be thrown out. >> and if they persist in that and held to that by this outside person they are breaking their oath of office and not serving what they swore to serve the american people. he points out the whole drowning the government in the bathtub. people are suggesting demolishing the government are anarchists. they are starving the beast by saying those who signed the pledge are unfit by office.

9:15am
success rate. >> a lot of holes in the dessert. some of them got batties in them. >> stephanie: if karl rove were to get hit by a bag, if he steps on a bag of vipers we might know where to look. shortly thereafter there will be a giant cartoon hand knocking on mr. mr. adelson's door. >> vipers everywhere you look. >> stephanie: okay. we're just kidding. >> [ inaudible ] is lousy with vipers.

immediately and people got mad because he didn't stay there long enough. the strategy followed the doctrine of counter insurgency which is you stabilize the government -- you can't just leave. you have to build up a government, police and everything like that and once it is stable then the forces leave and dod contracts come in to advise. >> stephanie: all right. i got to run. but thank you for your service, and thank you for your call. >> caller: thank you. >> stephanie: right? >> right. >> stephanie: smartest boy in class already. >> we need more flint locks. >> stephanie: we don't have enough boats. >> we have no cavalry anymore at all. good heavens. >> it is entirely unacceptable to have a repeat performance of what the american people watched with horror in the summer of

[ applause ] >> stephanie: good morning representative sandy levin. >> good morning. >> stephanie: let me borrow a term from john boehner, i am flabbergasted by the budget which they put forward, which is basically paul ryan's budget right? >> more or less. i mean it's basically a repeat. they come up with revenues but they won't touch tax rates, and they don't really say how they
10:06am
get the revenues. they would get it from what they call loopholes, deductions. they don't specify where it would come from so really it's a combination of the ryan budget, and what romney -- governor romney began to say toward the end of the election when he was worried a they were being tabbed as the party of the very wealthy, so he said well we won't lower taxes on the very wealthy, because we'll get ahold of loop holds and deductions, but they never said what they were and they continue to evade. but mainly they evade the basic question, are we going to keep the high income tax breaks or are we not? and if they insist on keeping them, they are going to take themselves and the country over the cliff. >> stephanie: uh-huh.
10:07am
this is -- we have been saying -- i don't think this is fooling anybody. they keep putting forth something that looks like the appearance of compromise and it isn't. why does there seem to be no realization of the fact that they lost on this budget issue on their side? >> i think it is because they are in denial. they keep on saying that there was no real election result; that we had a dead lock. >> stephanie: right. and that isn't true. >> stephanie: that's right. well they wrote a letter to the president -- boehner and six other house republicans, they insisted the election return obama to the white house and the gop return to the house requires both parties to come together in a fairground. but we know that didn't happen.
10:08am
i think everybody is aware, right, that it is the gerrymandering that has returned -- what they are calling middle ground is not middle ground right? >> it isn't middle ground and there wasn't a dead locked election. they forget a couple of things number 1 that there was an election, and the people spoke, and number two if you look at every survey -- i guess the second point is in this campaign there was a clear, clear outline by the president of where he stood, no secret. there had to be a continuation of the middle class tax cut, and an end of the tax cut for the very wealthy in -- in 2010 they got over 90%, the upper 1% -- 90% over that of the income growth and the third point, the surveys show after
10:09am
the election all of them -- that if you ask people should there be continuation of the middle class tax cuts? yes. should there be a continuation of the tax cuts for the very wealthy? no. the surveys are very clear. >> stephanie: this basically feigning shock at economic proposals that the president has put forward many times before and the voters just voted for, for mitch mcconnell to say he burst out laughing and john boehner to say he was flabber -- flabbergasted it is incredible. >> essentially they come up with a status quo proposal. >> stephanie: right. and the status quo that just lost. >> yeah, they are status quo, and that -- so that won't work.
10:10am
>> stephanie: representative what -- is nancy pelosi -- are we going -- is she going to put that forward this week in the house? the voting on the middle class tax cuts? >> absolutely. we have a discharge petition that's being filed at noon almost as we speak, in an hour three quarters it will be put forth and congressman walsh from minnesota and myself will sign it and we'll ask other democrats to sign it and i hope the republicans will sign it. essentially what it says is take up the senate bill. we all agree that the middle class tax cuts should be continued. let's do it. and we'll see. >> stephanie: right. >> the republicans instead essentially are acting as if -- if there's a cliff, there's a way to not go over it by doing everything except what the president insisted during
10:11am
the campaign needed to be done and the people spoke. >> stephanie: yep, that's right. well if you had to make a prediction today how this is going to play out, what would you say? >> i said yesterday i'm optimistic, and the reason is that -- you know, often in elections issues in campaigns -- issues are fuzzy. this issue wasn't fuzzy. this issue was clear-cut. >> stephanie: yeah it's essentially the largest issue the president ran on i think. >> i think it was that the auto companies, the 47% analysis of -- of -- statement of the governor. no, no. i think -- i think sometimes elections don't have clear messages. this time there was a clear message, and you can argue is a clear message a mandate or not? a clear message is at the very
10:12am
least a clear message. that's why i'm optimistic. the republicans have cornered themselves and essentially made norquist kind of their referee. they are going to have to end that. >> stephanie: yep, absolutely. representative good luck this week. >> thanks we need a bit of that. >> stephanie: thanks so much. >> the main thing is to keep mighting. >> stephanie: that's right. we'll talk to you again soon.
